Introduction:？Worldwide increasing cesarean section rates are
expected to have a parallel increase in the number of cases of Placenta Previa
with all the expected complications, including pathologically adherent
placenta. This morbidly adherent placenta constitutes a serious and possibly a
life threatening complication. An efficient team capable for managing possible
complicated situations will be able to reduce mortality and morbidity.Objectives: The aim of our
study was to evaluate maternal outcome in cases of Placenta Previa with and
without morbidly adherent placenta. Methods: Analysis of all pregnancies complicated by antepartum
hemorrhage during the period from January 2013 to September 2017 at King
Abdul-Aziz University Hospital (KAUH), Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA)
was done. Cases of Placenta Previa with gestational age >28
weeks were included. They were classified into 2 groups; Group (A) included
Placenta Previa cases without morbidly adherent placenta and Group (B) included
cases with morbidly adherent placenta
